X was the real YIt turns out that Charlton Heston was the real 'the family'.

This is the best movie based on I am Legend.

That's not really a high bar. The Will Smith one is trash and the Vincent Price one is not great but I enjoy it. This version isn't great, and it almost-certainly spoils the reveal of the Family too early, but I think its pretty fun. I also feel pretty good describing this movie as exactly half-way between "The Last Night on Earth" and "I am Legend".

This movie was super of its era and now I'm wonder if we're just going to get an adaptation of "I am Legend" every 20 to 30 years and if it will just be a reflection of current horror movies.
